Bel Canto is Italian for “beautiful melody” and that is precisely my goal at Bel Canto Strings!


In addition to private lessons, Bel Canto offers affordable group music lessons to students of all ages and experience levels. The string orchestra and guitar band programs offer a fun and inspiring atmosphere for music-making while keeping costs down for our students. I even offer a free instrument loan to students involved in the group programs.

Private lessons are available in-person and virtually. Fall group classes begin in-person September 14, with new precautions and smaller class sizes due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Owner and violinist, Miss Jennifer also performs regularly with professional colleagues at wedding ceremonies and other special events. For more information on our Wedding Packages and hiring our professional string ensembles, please visit our WEDDINGS page.
